The Week, May 17

Paved with good intentions

Forest lovers take note: your explorations into B.C.’s wilderness could be easier than ever before, at least if those summer adventures take you to Avatar Grove. Now, a new boardwalk may guide your way.

For $100, you can sponsor the construction of a one-meter section of the kilometre-long boardwalk and trail in Port Renfrew proposed by the Ancient Forest Alliance for Avatar Grove. The alliance started lobbying for the path to protect surrounding wilderness after the province announced the grove would be protected in an Old-Growth Management Area last February, which prohibits logging and mining. Scholarships for veterans

The alliance says any amount will help, and hopes to have the walk completed before the summer tourism rush. More: ancientforestalliance.org.
